What is bacterial vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis is an abnormal vaginal condition that is most often recognized by a fishy vaginal discharge. This is as a result from an overgrowth of normal bacteria in the vagina. You may have heard of Gardner Ella vaginitis. This is what this condition used to be called. It was named after the bacterium that was thought to cause the condition.
ü New research found that there are several different species of bacteria that live naturally in the vaginal area. Gardner Ella is not the only bacteria causing all the odor.
The name of this condition has been
changed to bacteria vaginosis to reflect these new findings.
When all the different species of bacteria become imbalanced, you will notice a vaginal discharge that is associated with a fishy odor.
Bacterial vaginosis is not an STD. It is not passed by sex. It is very embarrassing and disturbing and it is very dangerous as it lead to have a very disturbing sex life and even loss of partner and acquaintances if not treated early. If you notice an unusual discharge, you should have it checked so you can rule out Chlamydia and gonorrhea which are serious infections.
